Stop here whenever I'm in the area. It's a beer and wine place so most of the space is dedicated to wine, but what they carry is pretty solid. The place to check is in there "cellar." It's a little walk in cooler with some of the harder to find items. As far as service goes I've chatted with a couple people and took a good recommendation from one, but generally since it's not a huge area or I'm in the cooler I'm in and out without seeing anyone. Nice place to check out if you're around.

Not bad, but not worth it to me to drive 45 minutes to. Some kick butt beers but also a lot of outdated (not fresh) IPA's. Guessing doesn't come off the shelves fast enough. Did have some hard to get beers though. Nice local selection and a decent Imports section. Would stop by again only if in Greenville.

This is a unique store. It is split down the middle, one side liquor and one side beer/wine. You have to decide which route to take at the entrance. Once you are in, you have to exit to visit the other side. Pretty weird actually. If you are there for beer, heed old lady Fratelli's advice and "Stay to the right!"
I view this place as a hidden gem. From the outside (and most of the inside) this place looks like a BMC douchery. However, the craft section seemed to be untouched and was full of beers that typically sell out very quickly where I am from. I guess local beer nerds go elsewhere for the goods. Either way, this place is definitely worth a look if you are in the area.
They have a pretty nice growler station with a really impressive list. I just got a fill of Bell's Sweet Potato Stout. The fact they get non-bottled offerings from Bell's tells me they are doing something right, and I better keep an eye on them in the future.
I must say, I didn't expect any service, but I ended up talking to one of the workers about their taplist and some beer events they had scheduled. All while another employee was filling my growler. Their service was excellent.

I stopped here yesterday while visiting a friend in Greenville, SC.
I was impressed by the selection. There was a great aisle with many diverse craft beers from local brewers such as Highland Brewing out of Asheville, NC and the very local breweries from the Greenville area of Thomas Creek and RJ Rockers. I was happy to see that Bell's Brewery and New Belgium Brewing were also represented. I wish I'd had more time to browse through the craft beer selection here.
The one thing I would say was a bit disappointing was that I was not helped out by staff and when I asked if I could mix a six, I was informed that I could not and was not offered any further assistance.
The prices of the beers were very reasonable and the beer selection was very good so I would recommend this beer store if you're in Greenville.

I have a tap at home so this is the only place nearby to get the smaller pony kegs and management has been very helpful in ordering kegs for me. They only keep a few in stock (blue moon, fat tire, yuengling) but can order almost anything obtainable. They have a pretty good selection that is broken up by country. The pricing is good the staff is helpful but I have only found one person working there that is knowledgeable about beer just ask for the beer guy. The store could be better if they removed some wine and added more micro brew.

Small store, small selection, but they have some real gems.
Fresh Sculpin (new labels), Sculpin growler fills for ~$14. Also had some COAST offerings (one on the growler station too). Green's has a separate cellar for Belgians and a few big stouts.
Overall good selection, I can't seem to recall the other beers that I saw (the Sculpin really threw me off), but I remember considering buying about 5 other beers.
Service is pretty good, there seems to be only 1 or 2 people that truly know their beers, the rest appeared to be general employees.
I will definitely be back to this store, specifically for my Sculpin fix and COAST growlers
The best aspect about Green's is the growler selection

This is basically just like any other Green's that you might find elsewhere. They have a decent selection of beers to go around with quite a few limited releases popping up every now and again. If you pay in cash you can get a nice little discount as well. Service here kinda sucks unless you are looking for wine, but there are one or two people there who know their beer (good luck finding them however). Overall this is a nice location to check for some harder to find brews, but I wouldn't go more than twice a month.

A nice store that has a large and varied selection of craft beer. Pop the Cap SC style has VASTLY improved things here. Everything seemed to be within date and I didnot see any questionable or dusty bottles.
Staff was friendly enough but no one went out of their way. I really didn't have any questions anyways so....
I felt they have a solid selection overall and try to get just about everything that is available in SC. Seemed good to me--but whan't blown away by finding anything "rare" or unusual. Not lcaking by any means--just not WOW!
A quality store for sure and worthy of a stop if you find yourself in town. But, this is not a destination beer store, more of a when in Greenville store.

very disappointed. i've seen the advertisements for Green's, been to their website, so i was expecting a large selection of beer. not so.
this is basically a wine and liquor store with an average selection of beer. there wasn't a whole lot of variety, the high gravity cooler was lacking in american brews, but had a decent selection of euro's. i had a hard time finding something local that i hadn't tried before, and i can't believe i've had all the SC brews. it seems terrapin is putting something new out monthly.
and since the beer is limited to one aisle, why do you hold the wine tasting in the beer section? there were 3 aisles dedicated to wine. make more sense to host it near the wine.
